So we have two different racks that could be, but not necessarily are teamed up with the T2V

Isn't this also like the 600th time we've been in a dilemna to figure out the various combinations that occurred at the assembly plants?

yes and there was no rhyme or reason to what they chose to put in a given car

In your car there is a bar called the stabilizer bar or sway bar. It runs between the left and right suspension. Or right front and left front tires. Then it is connected to the suspension via bolts and bushings (rubber from the factory). The stabilizer bar being connected keeps your car from dipping and swaying when turning.

Many on the club have swapped over to a replacement bushing and bolt kit available at autozone made by Energy Suspension. It has urethane bushings instead of rubber. The urethane are much more durable and once changed your car corners and feels much less like a big old boat floating in the water. I myself was impressed with the difference.

Well i'm really short of money, my factory is on shut-down for a week and I need a new left front wheel bearing, rotors, (pads are coming) plugs and wires, and then hopefully the endlinks. Another question my bro was saying that I should replace my tie-rod links. First what the heck are they and do you think I should replace with my new wheel bearing?

Tie rod links are the the middle section between the inner and outter rods.
